Flash Forward

My students need one iPad and one iPod to gain skills and make connections to the real world in a meaningful manner that will help them be the stars of the class.

My Students

Being the kid who doesn't "get it" because you lack learning experiences that everyone else seems to have is a burden. My students feel this burden too often as a result of their rural home setting.

My students are special education students in 8th grade who are in inclusion classes and attend school in a small town junior high.

My students have varying skill levels in which they could benefit from hands-on applications to practice their real life math and technology skills. Many students come to my room lacking basic life skills and methods to apply newly learned skills to real life because they lack opportunities of experience to build background knowledge or because they lack opportunities to apply newly learned skills to the real world.

My Project

Through iPods/iPads in the classroom, my students can apply math skills to real life situations with the wide variety of programming available as applications. Through the use of the iPad/iPod devices, my students will gain the skills make connections to the real world in a meaningful manner that will help them be the stars of the class. Having a real world application to practice these new math skills will give life to their learning and help them to make the connections they so badly need in order to be successful.

Help my students be the ones who "get it" in the inclusion classes.

These are the students who need just that extra lift and connection to the real world. IPad/iPod use, for them, will be that connection that will make the difference now and in their future.
